Montgomery is at horns from Moberly. Some Arizonians. I San Diego. Cal, Jan. Former j expositions have shown wild men i and women from the Antipodes, but it has remained for the San Diego Exposition to find a whole nation of wild men within the bor ders of the United States, a whole vast area where nothing has .pro- j gressed since before the invasion of J Mexico by Cortez in 1517. This j area is in northeastern Arizona, and ' ihe Santa Fe Railway will cover; ten acres of ground at the Exposi j tion with as close a copy of this) country as is possible to produce, j This locality is known as the Painted Dtsert. Its a land where no white man has dared attempt j agriculture or mining, where there is nothing but the Indian, his an-. cient civilization un-altered, living in six story houses of 1C0 rooms without an outside door, doing the same things in the same way his forefathers did for centuries before white men came to America. Comparatively few white men : have penetrated this district. None has remained there. At long inter vals a scientist has penetrated the fastnesses of the red and yellow , hills. Indians emerge from it oc- ! casionally but they invariably re- I turn. Their homes are the" identi- 1 cal buildings erected many cen- . turies ago. Their pottery is the same, used for the same purpose and in the same rude manner. Their customs and tribal laws re main unchanged since when no man knows to the contrary. They irrigate small patches of grain just as did their forefathers. The coun try repels even the hardy prospec tor. Trees, except those petrified into stone, are not seen. No two hills are of the same color. The very rocks are variegated in hue. The pitiless sun scorches all vegeta tation encouraged by the winter and spring rains Members of the Santa Fe explor ing party declare the Painted Desert rivals the wonderul Grand Canyon of the Colorado in grand eur and beauty of scenery. A second party has been sent into it to gather material for the great ex hibit the railway will install at the San Diego Exposition, to contain every thing possible to bring from that region, a territory that seems to have been forgotten by Nature herself Mrs. A.
